    No, a microwave on the counter does not count as permanently installed. So I'm going to say it's probably OK except for the AFCIs.

    Cheap fixtures from big box stores are not that heavy.

    I wouldn't have much issue with metallic Wiremold in many situations like OP described.

    At same time I don't think it is NEC compliant. Damp location can be tricky in many aspects, how much...
